Place for criollo food

It is a family and inexpensive restaurant for local criollo food. The price was good and the food was average. They serve a lot of food.

Good flavors at a good price. Servings are good size --- some enough for two. Place was packed! Had shrimp salad with mofongo. Shrimp was well cooked.

Excellent food and price. Must come back lot of locals so its a sign of very hood food and service. Ask for "Mingo" the owner. You won't be disappointed.

To start, the food is good local (Dominican) rice and beans fried steak thing. It is open late, a mix of classes in the abandoned area of Santurce. But service is slow. And they will treat you much better at Los Pinos in Miramar a better neighborhood down the road.

I liked the extensive menu, good prices, good location, nice parking, and good service. I try to go at least once a month there. They have music on Saturdays but I have never gone on Saturdays.

If looking for a cheap option on a dominican style food place this is it. Ambiance not so welcoming but it stands out from its neighbors.

Not the best place to eat local food, prices are not bad, the service is regular, the atmosphere of the place is very bad not decoration, is eat and go.
